Jessica Falkholt's life support has been turned off two week after she was injured in a car crash

Craig Whitall, 50, crashed his Toyota Prado four-wheel-drive into the Falkholt's family vehicle while driving home from a methadone clinic on the New South Wales south coast, south of Sydney, on Boxing Day.

The 29-year-old has been fighting for her life in St George Hospital since being pulled from the wreckage, along with her 21-year-old sister, Annabelle, on 26 December near Ulladulla on the New South Wales south coast.

News Limited outlets reported that the Summer Bay star's life support was switched off on Thursday night, more than a fortnight after the horror crash.

Ms Falkholt and her sister Annabelle were pulled from the crash, as the vehicles went up in flames, but her parents died in the burning auto, along with the 4WD's driver.

They previously told Daily Mail Australia an operation on her brain "went well" and they were waiting for the results of the surgery.

Bystanders managed to pull Jessica and Annabelle from the crash before the auto burst into flames, but Annabelle died three days later in Liverpool Hospital.
